The facilities are funded through a University-authorized chargeback system that includes recovery of expenses for equipment operating time and for activity from the research staff. Billing is sent out monthly for work completed in each facility. Users are responsible for providing a business office contact and account information before initiating a project or using instruments in the facilities.

Investigators may be financially responsible for instrument damages due to improper use by those users in their labs. Principal investigators may also be financially responsible for instrument reservations that are not canceled 24 hours prior to the reserved time.

Disagreements over payment should be raised with the BBC Center operations manager for resolution.
